Pin Cushions..

I have spent all day designing a pin cushion...
Yes a pin cushion...
Its been one of those days...:(
Everything went wrong..
From needles breaking to colours bleeding...
I havent been a happy camper at all...
In the end I managed to make 2 out of 22 ...
Every single one had something wrong with it...
Im not even sure im going to put them in the shop...

 
More trouble than they are worth I think..

Blanket box in Putty

...This little guy has been all over the house...
...As a table, a bedside cabinet, a toy box...
He has been tiled....decoupaged...stripped and painted more than a dozen times....
As of yesterday he is chalk painted in a nice putty colour... 
and placed in the bedroom for now, 

....storing... 
I dont know what yet...





Recycled Garden

My pathway leading into the backdoor was looking a tad tatty...
It was also getting quite dangerous to walk on..
My foot would slip down under the rotten wooden border...


First job was gathering the bigger stones together....
Then was to source cheap slabs ...
Which I got recycled from another garden from the local gardener...
They were as cheap as chips...
Only problem with this is... its hard labour...
 3 trips later and some really sore hands...

First I fenced and mended the rotten wood..
I always have lots of scrap wood :)
... Three slabs across not fitting...and angle grinders and diamond blades in my thoughts..
I did not want to cut slabs...
I left a large border where I placed the larger stones ..
I bought a bag of concrete mix and poured it over...
That should keep them in place...

Maximising a small space.

When I first viewed the house it was the roomy kitchen that done it for me...
My kitchen at the time you couldnt swing a mouse in never mind a cat!!!
But now 5 years on the kitchen feels tight ...not small... just a little compact ...
Its all about maximising your space....
 
I like furniture with multiple purposes..
My sideboard, which I use for all my crockery storage.. and more...
It also gives me an extra work top and chopping area...
and  lets me display some of my nicer chopping boards on the back...

Edwardian Dresser revamp..

I found this in the charity shop last year, its been sitting in my shed.
Its far too dark for me, I tried living with it for a few days...
The large Edwardian mirror and side compartments dont leave you much surface space either..


 All the old holes filled and new ones drilled :) 
More surface space now...
This is painted in quite a warm creamy off white colour...




When you buy older peices..
A common problem is sticky drawers...
It usually takes two hands to open and shut them... 
Get a bar of soap or candle :)
rub all over where the drawer and the unit meet, dont be shy...
It really works!!!!
 


 You can find these wall hangings in my Etsy shop

Just thought I would take a wee pic of my rather plentiful bowl of fruity juicy freshness...
Oh and the hanging tea towels are from  
"Their Nibs" a gorgeous online shop I found quite by accident...

1920s Antique Oak Bookcase...

This bookcase is beautiful...
Its an Antiqued oak 1920s solid piece...
Its slimline design means it can fit anywhere...
I needed something to house some of my crafty bits n bobs...
The antiqued Oak is too dark for me......
So I painted it in some of my handmade chalk paint :)..
The stain in the Oak coloured it a nice off white/creamy colour...



Its only been 5 minutes and Ive moved it again.....

Fake Tiled hearth.

A few years back I made a fake tile hearth from patterned papers...
Cut into tile size and varnished...


After a few years the paper varnished tiles in the hallway fireplace were looking a tad worn....
Remember these vinyl tiles from the top of the hallway floor..



I used the leftovers of the vinyl tiles, cut them into smaller squares and grouted them into place to give me a more hardwearing fake hearth..




The Hallway 


 The Bedroom







Going white...

I went to Ikea the other day to have a look at some furniture.....
I want to go all white again with colourful patterned accessories of course!
I just couldnt buy any of it..
In Comparison to my vintage pieces they just didnt do it for me quality wise.....
I am quite used to wooden dovetail drawers not plastic sliding ones...
Away home I went quite dissapointed...
So Ive decided on painting all my own pieces again white...
I have a chest of drawers and a bookcase in the JiggleMaWiggle shed at the moment...
Heres the living room at the moment...


The Pink unit, the turquoise desk and the yellow bureau are all getting redone... 
Also there was a bureau for £200 in Ikea...
This one I found in a skip and its a more robust piece...
Why would I replace it I tell myself !!!

Edwardian Chair.

I think this is an Edwardian chair with its tapered legs,
rolled arms and rectangular back with no upholstery.
But I am no expert and not completely sure!
I picked it up for £15.00
I thought it would be perfect for a wee reading /crochet chair.







I just quickly wadded and covered it,
I had some duck egg blue upholstery fabric in the cupboard.
